Burghound – 92
(Outstanding) There is just enough reduction present to blur the nuances of the citrus peel and green fruit scented nose. Otherwise there is markedly more power and volume to the muscular flavors that coat the palate with dry extract on the very firm and well-balanced finale. Here too patience will be beneficial.
Vinous – 90-92
The 2019 Meursault Poruzots Dessus 1er Cru displays attractive tropical notes of passion fruit and guava on the nose, maybe obscuring some Meursault typicité but you won’t complain too loudly. The palate is well balanced with that tropical theme continuing, very smooth in texture with nectarine, Clementine, peach and apricot towards the seductive finish. Fine, but more early drinking fare.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2030
Jasper Morris – 92-95
From three plots, the oldest being planted in 1944, but damaged by American tanks the following year, apparently. Mid lemon colour and with an attractive chiselled bouquet showing some personality. Excellent weight of fruit on the palate, livelier yellow plum notes, excellent acidity, with a delicious long finish.
